Looks nice but the low seats down the right field line are going to suck. The seats are too low and you won't be able to see the game because the players will be in the way. Ran into that problem years ago in the Vet in Philly when I purchased tickets on the 50 yard line for an Eagles game. Ended up moving to the upper deck in the sun by the scoreboard in the second half to see the game better. The seats on the Green Monster might be interesting even though they are pretty far away. 04-cheers

According to the seating charts, both teams will be on the far side of the field (monster side). This is what they did for the Shamrock Series game.

That will help quite a bit but fans will still be standing in the lower seats to see to dodge the media people if the game is on TV. Anyway enjoy its a nice venue. I took my family to Fenway last year to see the Red Sox. Enjoyed the venue and the touring the city while we were their. 04-cheers

All UMass games are on TV, however this game is on NESNPlus versus NESN National. The game is also on FIOS and DirectTV via Elevensports and streamed by UMass free to everyone outside of New England.

Looks like my tickets are high enough in R.F. Box 97 row PP but will be seating elsewhere for the game.

Will be interesting to see who plays at the QB position. Whip does not give away that information.

I like the uniform…. UMASS should consider wearing it more than just once (you are the "Minutemen"). It could help improve the image of its program—which might get noticed by The American when future realignment occurs. UMASS still has other issues to address; however, I think its football program is headed in the right direction ^ 04-cheers

Nice idea, however UMass is putting the uniforms up for auction.

Quote:UMass has put 100 of the uniforms up for auction -- with proceeds set to be split between on-campus military and veteran groups, along with the Gridiron Club.

Special thanks to all Veterans and to the Boston Red Sox for hosting us at Fenway Park.

Honestly, considering the weather, their record, and their opponent (UMaine is kinda far from Fens, so they didn’t get too many people), I think there was a pretty solid crowd last night.
~13,000 were in attendance.
